Construct 2 is the perfect "platform". But I would recommend starting with a simpler game(s) until you get really comfortable with Construct2 (I know, no one wants to hear that). A game like your wanting to make will require mad organization on your part and lots and lots of logic.

Try making a WAY scaled down version first... say a "Lemonaide stand simulator" or some such...

It depends on your skill level, organization, and motivation how hard it will be. I am not trying to discourage you, just saying start with a smaller version of what you want to accomplish and then build onto it, you may be surprised at how something that should be simple in theory is actually quite complex in practice.

If you have your art assets, know basic programming, are familiar with construct2, and have good work ethic you could easily complete this much quicker than that. I give the basic logic framework a difficulty of 4. I give the data management, to include persistent data management and offline earning calculations and handling a difficulty of 6. However, unless your making a straight up clone, I give gameplay balance (ie. making it engaging and fun) a difficulty of 10.

A quote comes to mind though... " "Level's Jerry, I'm building levels."
